The Best Colours For Selling Your Home:
What a Coat of Paint Can Do For Your Home Sale

A new study conducted by Zillow Porchlight found that the best colours for selling your home are blue, beige, or grey. Certain rooms with these colours sold for more than similar homes with white walls. And so, because we want to ensure you get the most buck for your abode, we’re highlighting seven ways to incorporate these magical money-making hues into your home.
